Default AK Ammo situation

For your information only! Rather have enough, than none at all!


If you plan on doing any training.

He says from a major supplier of ammunition they sold 23% of their domestic inventory in the last 24 hours.

His supplier has no 7.62 on the water, i.e. on the boat being shipped into the country and neither does the Russian companies from his sources.

Ammunition 5.45 caliber is also affected.

Looking at 4 months without shipments, the Tulo warehouse is out in the states and Wolf ammunition is rationing to sellers!

So, I've got a great idea. Lets post a lot of stuff about a possible shortage that may happen and alert a bunch if people who may not be well informed about a situation. That way we can create a panic before there is a reason for one. Lets make prices and availability as bad as we can, and as fast as possible.

I am just posting the information for the AK and SKS folks. I walk into Sportsman's Warehouse and you see the ammunition section that once held, pistol/revolver and 7.62 completely bare and their shipments are made up of 1 or 2 cases only!

I understand. But part of the shortages are driven by continuing to drive people to think that they need to buy more than they need, every time they see ammo available. If they continue to stockpile at every opportunity, it delays normalizing the market.

That's hard to define numerically. OTOH, if a person has an AR, and already has 2,500 rounds of factory ammo stockpiled, why "buy out the store" whenever a distributor gets more in, and make it unavailable to everyone else?

Even if the Chinese invade, do you really believe that you're going to shoot up 2,500 rounds through your semi-auto rifle before you get killed???? You might even last a little longer if your neighbors were able to buy some ammo and have the ability to fight beside you.

Some folks think they're bullet proof, but you're not!

Thank you. Couldn't have said it better myself. In essence,

the internet is a two edged sword. No ammo "on the water".

What hogwash! How can you possibly verify that?

IMO this is rumor-mongering at it's worst, and look!

There go the prices!
